That is what I think about when I see a gretsch guitar. Mighty fine.
What is this wait 22 seconds before you can post a reply ?
Double post. Sorry.
With those pickups on that gorgeous guitar, i’d recommend a stainless steel tru-arc serpentune!
I have two stainless steel tru-arcs and they’re magical!
I have a brass serp....great bridge! Emphasizes the low mids which I like. With those bright pickups you might think about the brass serp which may balance nicely.
Thank you very much, I had the same in mind. Here in Europe (for now) there is a shop in England F-holes but I waited to order it because in the spacing option I don't know what to choose standart or bigsby compensated? I wear standard strings, g plain. Please let me know
I saw that available in titanium, expensive but I'm very tempted .. Does anyone have experience with him? I imagine the tone it has may be somewhere between aluminum and steel.
Titanium is my favorite Serpentune, I have several of them. I use titanium and brass: titanium for wide-range frequency response with no accentuated frequencies and brass for warm low-mid tones. Ask for the plain-G version compensation.
EDIT: For reference: Aluminum = twangy, Stainless Steel =bright highs.
Just a few of my Serpentunes below:
molto, molto bene!
That is one simply beautiful guitar, love the flamed Maple. Congratulations!
Wow beautiful collection!
Thanks for the suggestions, I just ordered a Tru-arc serpentune titanium on f-holes stores, I'm really curious to hear its tone. I hope it will come soon, the e-mail said that there is time, how long to wait for a bridge?
I get mine direct from Tru-Arc in USA. Ordering time can sometimes be a wait if there is none in stock, but shipping to me in Oz is usually about 5-7 days.
As for the tone, most metals tend to resonate or have a particular part of the frequency response accentuated. Titanium is the most "uncolored" because the frequency response is wide and flat with no particular frequencies accentuated. Caveat: these are my opinions only, everyone's ears are different and the guitar and pickups are also integral to the overall tone.
Serp Master!!!! Great collection sir!
Uh, that is just the last 2 shipments combined. I have another 7 on Gretsch guitars already.
Feels good man. Congratulations on such a great Gretsch guitar.
